Higher Number of Employees Report Seeing Illegal Contributions
The Ethics Resource Center reports in a new study that four times as many employees of large corporations have seen illegal donations given to public officials.
According to an article in today’s edition of Politico: “Four percent of 4,600 private-sector employees surveyed this fall by the Ethics Resource Center said they witnessed improper contributions to campaigns and parties. By comparison, only 1 percent of respondents reported these transgressions in the group’s previous study, completed in 2009.”
